I was born in Hummelo, in the countryside in the Netherlands. Already from a young age I have been a creative doer. My father was a carpenter, when he worked in his workshop in the weekends, I used to be set up with a hammer, nails and leftover wood to create whatever I pleased. Like my father, I’m a maker and love the practical side of photography.
I learned the craft as photographer in the traditional way at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague . My passion started with making portraits, later on my focus shifted also towards landscapes and stills. Combining these all in one story is what makes me happiest.
From 2010 till 2018 I lived in Raglan, a beautiful, small beachside town in New Zealand. With some quirky Kiwiness in my system I returned to my beloved city the Hague.
I am available for editorial and commercial assignments. Please call me or send me a message when you are interested to team up. Thanks
